Well, I'm finally here......

Welcome to The Night Shift. I think this is a rather auspicious date to begin, don't you?

Oddly enough, after being sidetracked by the demands of work and family from creating any art for years, I returned to drawing and painting
in the summer of 2001, just a few short weeks before 9/11.

That was NOT an auspicious time to commit oneself to art.

But I've kept at it. My work has grown and changed and I finally feel ready to share it with a larger audience and to make a daily commitment to my work, and this is the place where I'll begin. Here's a watercolor I finished this summer, just a few short weeks ago, and I thought it a lovely, serene note upon which to begin. This painting is 14"x16" and, like all the images I'll be posting, is for sale.

"Leaves No. 7" 15.5" x 12", ink and watercolor on paper. Purchase a print here.

Ha! Beautiful painting, Victoria! I really like it. I tried to take up watercolors many years ago just as an amateur, not an artist, but I wouldn't make myself stick to it. Every time I see something nice like your painting, I feel jealous, but it's a silly feeling. Good luck with the blog.
